ROCHESTER, NH | Dover Flexo Electronics (DFE) offers the EasyView tension indicator, a compact, general-purpose web tension amplifier and display (analog or LED) for web printers, converters, and web process manufacturers. It mounts on a machine frame in its enclosure version, or it may install into a panel cutout on an OEM operator panel or in a cabinet.
The unit is powered by 24 volts DC and amplifies a web tension signal from tension transducers installed in a machine’s web path. Company says it displays an accurate tension reading on an analog or digital meter while supplying an isolated 0-to-10 VDC tension signal output to a PLC, drive, or controller.
Quik-Cal is a labor-saving feature of EasyView. During setup, the operator pushes a ZERO button and a CALIBRATE button for one second each to set the Zero and Span settings, rather than having to turn potentiometers. Because the zero and calibration settings are stored digitally, the output reportedly is stable and drift-free over time and varying temperature.
